This would be useful for users whose tab bar is hidden when only one tab is open (the default). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Drag a link from somewhere (I dragged an URL from an email in Thunderbird) 2. Try to drop it on the new tab/new window button 3. The cursor changes to a circle with a bar through it indicating an illegal operation Actual Results: Nothing! Expected Results: The software should have loaded the URL in a new tab if it was dropped on the new tab button or a new window if it was dropped on the new window button.
This looks like it would be a neat idea. I could possibly see some problems with implementing it, but we will see. <-NEW
